Catching Walleye = Christmas Toys for Kids

Here is a great story from one of our team members Joe Pickstock on how he decided to make a difference this Christmas season by donating $1 per pound of walleye caught to the Belleville Firefighters Toy Drive.  Here is his story…

“I was on the way to the boat to do one of my charters when I thought it would be kinda cool to give to the Belleville Firefighters Childrens Toy Drive. Trying to decide on an amount I thought I’ll let the walleye decide… So I decided that for every pound of walleye caught on my boat between December 1st and December 15th I would donate $1.  I originally posted the info on Facebook and received a lot of positive feedback.  Jack from Radioworld called me to say he really liked the idea and wanted to match my donation!

The month started off kind of slow with only a few fish a day but some we got into some bigger fish and the total started rising. Well, over the last 4 or 5 days the walleye have gotten in the holiday mood with several days with 8 or more fish, this past weekend saw over 200 lbs of walleye and our total now stands at $744.00. When asked about my goal originally I thought if we could hit $500 it would be great!  So to have exceeded that by almost half as much again is simply awesome and fun.”

 

Great job Joe!  So far the biggest fish of the month is a whopper at 14.28lbs.  If you are interested in a day of fishing with Joe check out his website at http://www.pbandjcharters.com/.

Check Out This Electronics Setup

Earlier in the year we worked closely with Scott Walcott from West Lake Willows resort in Picton, ON as he was outfitting his boat with electronics.  Scott operates a charter boat service focusing on walleye in the Bay of Quinte and eastern Lake Ontario.  We assisted him in the selection of marine electronics for his new boat he was taking delivery of in the fall.

Take a look at this video Scott made doing a quick walk through of his electronics setup.

As you can see this boat is loaded with the latest in marine electronics technology.  If you are interested in a day of fishing with Scott aboard the his 26′ Wooldridge Pilot house you can contact him through his website at www.westlakewillows.com
